Hi There

Summary

Usage of compatible ink and leave the printer idle too long may cause printhead clogging
What should you do if you get this problem. Relax; you may recover the printhead by unclogging it. Follow these steps to unclog the printhead

1. Right click in the printer driver name
2. Select Properties menu
3. Click Maintenance tab
4. Click on cleaning sign for regular cleaning. Perform this up to 3 times.
5. If this does not work, perform Deep Cleaning

And if that not work

Some times it needs a good clean up but this is up to you if you want to do this,
But after you done this prime the printer so it gets the inks back in the heads, it may take a little time for the inks to work.

Ok.

There is fluid cleaner for this but I can never find any in the shops the only ones I seen is when they sell them in Tesco but they come in with the ink refill bottles so I just use worm water by it self on a cloth and dabbing on the heads to clean them, it will not harm the heads but not to much water.

Some heads are on the inks them self but some have them inside the printer so I not know your printer so if the heads are inside you need to get them out you may find that some heads will just clip out put some need to be unscrewed so you got to know how they come out so be careful and not push to hard on them, if the heads are on the ink then it is a easy job to clean them,
It worth a try it worked for me more than ones.

Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.
All The Best: Pineworks

    The problem could be caused by an alignment problem. Please try to do an alignment on your printhead.

    Display reads printer band needs realining how do we do this? it does not print properly the ink overlaps


    I looked at teh service manual for this printer and could not find anything about the error message. But you might be able to fix this by going into your printers properties and mainenance tab and selecting the printhead alignment option. You might need to do a printout and then adjust the settings per the directions that the printer gives you on your computer screen.

    Best of luck.

    Canon S600 bubblejet priner won't print color


    In all likelihood, the nozzles in the printhead are blocked. The printhead is the carrier that holds the tanks. Remove the printhead and remove the tanks from the printhead. Flush the printhead THOROUGHLY with hot running water. You can also **** on the color discharge area (square and the black discharge area (rectangular) on the bottom to draw warm watr through the nozzles to further clean them. Dry the prinhead thoroughly, reinsert your tanks and reinsert the printhead in the printer. I then do a "nozzle check" to refill the passages in the printhead and get things flowing agan.

    Bottom half of pgbk band doesn't print


    First try doing a deep head cleaning or two; if that doesn't work, try removing the printhead and looking at the bottom of it to make sure there is nothing blocking the small ejection holes on printhead, reinstall the printhead, do the alignment again an that should do it, if not you may need a new printhead.
